Smelly Sunday | Rose Gold

Hello! This post begins the start of a sort of 'series' I'm doing called 'Smelly Sundays' where I'll review or talk about all things smelly - perfumes, candles, and other such scented things! It probably won't be regular, but if I have something smelly, I'll post it on Sunday :). Anyhoo, today's post is on a perfume that I have wanted for a while now and I got it from my friends for my birthday! Thanks guys!


It is the Michael Kors Gold Rose Edition perfume! I love all things rose gold and this scent just drew me in (be forewarned, I'll have lots of pics to show of its beauty). I have the 50mL bottle, the 30mL bottle retails for $96 in Myer which is quite expensive, but you can pick it up cheaper online.



Yes, I got out all of my rose gold bits and bobs for decoration :p


Let me just say that I suck at describing scents, let alone picking out individual notes. My nose just isn't intelligent enough. So, I will let Michael Kors himself do the talking ;)

"Luminous pink pepper with a deeply voluptuous bouquet of tuberose and a whisper of a creamy sandalwood.
Radiant glamour for an eau de parfum that's undeniably feminine."

According to Fragrantica it contains the notes of "tuberose, lily-of-the-valley, peony, gardenia, rose, water lily, pink pepper raspberry and champaca." 

As you can tell, it's definitely a floral scent. Some of those things I haven't even heard of! From my plebeian nose, I can detect the sandalwood and the floral notes, to me it's quite a sweet floral. To be honest, I don't know what most of the notes and flowers smell like individually! I think that it is night and day appropriate and as described, very feminine. The eau de parfum lasts all day and is still distinctly there by the end of the day.




The bottle is absolutely gorgeous - simplistic but it makes a statement! I love its rectangular quality and the rose gold band but it can be prone to attract fingerprints and smudges. The 'squirter' (you know, that button thing pictured above) is very firm and does need a good, hard squeeze which I quite like as it's not flimsy. The nozzle dispenses a good amount and sprays from a good distance.


Even the perfume itself is rose gold too!



I'm really not the hugest perfume person, I don't own too many and I can't tell the difference between one floral and another, but I highly recommend giving this one a sniff! I just absolutely adore it and I think it might become my 'signature scent'!

Have you tried any of Michael Kors' fragrances?

  2. It's gorgeous! How generous of your friends- I'm happy with Stella and Bright Crystal for now but my next goal is CHANEL Coco Mademoiselle- I surreptitiously spritz it on every time I walk past CHANEL and it makes my day. :)

  3. Thanks for your comment Tashi! I like the Rimmel mascara because the comb-y bits (I don't know how to describe it haha) on the wand are really short so I can get to the roots of my lashes easily. I hate having only half my lashes coated haha so I like that I can really get in there :)

    Love this post by the way and how you made your photos look like they came out of a beauty spread in a magazine! I'm loving rose gold at the moment and while I have plenty of perfumes and don't need another, next time I pass the perfumery, I'll stop by and try this MK one :)

  5. Hahaha Smelly Sunday made me laugh! I love rose gold- although now I think of it, I don't own anything of that shade! I haven't seen this perfume around but it is described so nicely- I could never describe scents either :P I spy the FOA Glitterati polish in Studio 54!

    1. Hehe, I was going to do 'Fragrant Friday' initially but I wanted to be more original! You need to go get some! It's so easily accessible now that it's trendy.
